Almost Daily FRC Bashing

Today Family Research Council Action sent out an email calling its readership to protest Jay Leno:
On April 29th Jay Leno and his wife are hosting a fundraiser for the Feminist Majority Foundation, a radical pro-abortion group that not only advocates for abortion on demand, but also for the closing of pro-life pregnancy centers.

This month the Feminist Majority Foundation sent an e-mail to its 400 campus affiliates planning a nationwide protest against facilities that dare to offer women alternatives to abortion and the support they need to choose life.
To tell you the truth I didn't realize that Leno was such a women's right advocate. I'd generally thought of his as probably a Democrat (since most people in Hollywood are) but definitely more on the moderate to conservative side.

The email calls for its readers to contact NBC CEO Jeff Zucker to tell his star to get less activisty, fast. It's hard for me to see how the NBC CEO would be persuaded to tell his employees what causes they can and cannot advocate for, especially when they're stars as big as Leno. Still, the right has proven themselves easily mobilized, so we'll have to see what effect, if any, they have on the event.
